This Nixon Center monograph,
Hizb ut-Tahrir: Islam’s Political Insurgency 
,breaks new ground in exploring the danger posed by the spread of radicalIslamist ideology. The focus of this monograph is Hizb ut-Tahrir al-Islamiyya(The Islamic Party of Liberation), which has successfully sown the seeds of anideology encouraging a clash of civilizations in over forty countries.
HT
takesadvantage of the open societies of the West to spread its strongly anti-Americanand anti-Semitic ideology.
HT
thereby provides terrorist networks such as al-Qaeda and the Islamic Movement of Uzbekistan with ideological cover.The findings and recommendations of this monograph are crucially important to ensuring long-term U.S. security. Zeyno Baran, Nixon CenterDirector for International Security and Energy Programs, has termed
HT
a“conveyor belt” for radicalism and terrorism, and suggests that “the tolerance of intolerance is no longer acceptable if we are to win the battle of ideas.” Her focuson this battle of ideas as the essential part of the War on Terror makes animportant contribution to the ongoing debate on how best to secure America’sfuture position. Her recommendations are both visionary and realistic if we areto succeed in what she calls “our generation’s existential struggle.”Forthcoming Nixon Center monographs include one by David M. Lamptonand Travis Tanner of the Chinese Studies Program. The monograph will appearthis spring and will examine the impact that Taiwan's March 2004 presidentialelections and December 2004 Legislative Yuan elections will have on cross-Straitrelations.Dimitri K.
